Prayer Versus The Nightly News

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8
I don't know about you, but I almost can not stomach the nightly news on any network these days. Terrorism, ISIS, government tyranny, war, robbery, lying and deception, judicial tyranny and on and on it goes. A few days ago a friend posted the verse I have highlighted today in a post on Facebook. It is so very crucial to stay focused on good. And while you are focusing on good remember we are commanded to pray for our enemies and this country has many some sadly within our own government. 
We as a people were founded as a free and God fearing nation. Bible verses are etched in granite all over the nations Capitol in Washington, D.C.. There are those in high power who do not like this who are enemies of the cross of Christ and seek to tear down Christians and elevate Islam. These are times when I feel revival is near as we in this country better wake up. Political correctness and a busy life has rocked many of us into a stupor. Endearment to a political party has blinded many to dangers around us and on our very doorstep. 
God ultimately is on the throne and maybe he is allowing things to happen to get our attention. Tyrants do not like free governments. Evil hates good. Wherever you are today please stop and pray for The United States of America. We for sure need a revival of major proportion.
PRAYER: Heavenly Father you have been good to the United States of America because for years we followed you and acknowledged you. Now there are many trying to rewrite your Holy word or tear you out of society all together. Turn evil hearts to good and help those who do not know you as Jehovah Jireh come to know you and repent of their sins. In Jesus' name. Amen.
